(Great Western Main Line &
Thames Valley Lines)
It is the terminus of the Great Western Main Line, Thames Valley commuter services and Heathrow Express/Connect/TfL Rail services to Heathrow airport. Most services to the station are by Great Western Railway and Heathrow Express/Connect (which has being taken over by GWR), TfL Rail (to become the Elizabeth Line when the Crossrail station is completed). There are also a few Chiltern Railway services too.
As might be expected Paddington is a busy station with over thirty five million passengers passing through every year. A Crossrail Paddington station has been built and will open at the end of 2018.
